However, here is where we bring in Arnie, I do agree with Arnold Schwarzenegger that really we do need to reduce our consumption of meat for ecological reasons. You can read the full article here - Stop Eating Meat and Save The Planet

My hubby, however, is just not on board with vegetarian meals so we have reached a strange compromise! I love this roasted butternut squash and caramelized onion tart - recipe here from epicurious. I tasted it at a friend's house and have been trying to perfect it to my own taste - no bread crust, little less butter, more equal cheese ratios, perfecting the tart casing etc. It is really tasty.......as anything with 3 types of cheese should be! It is a vegetarian recipe but to get hubby to eat it, half of the tart has bacon pieces put into it making a vegetarian and non-vegetarian combo. In a sense it is not a steak dinner, so there is some meat consumption reduction of sorts which is the best I can do with the man of the house at the moment! If you are wondering the bacon side tastes phenomenal......as anything with bacon should!
|This is the vegetarian side of the tart, the pieces you see are actually the caramelised onion, not bacon!|
Finally if you have ever watched an episode of Dr.Phil or Steve Harvey, you will see that plugging yourself is highly recommended for daytime TV. If you have an interested audience who came to see one thing, don't forget to shamelessly advertise your own brand, just make sure it kind of, sort of links in to the thing the audience came to see. I am therefore pinching a leaf from this tree and saying.........here is my rosemary print available now as part of the new Kitchen Art or Kitchen Decor in my shop! My tart above contained rosemary and thyme fresh from my garden (can I get a hand clap for linking this in?). I hope you enjoyed my shameless self promotion because I enjoyed crafting this tale, purely to show you my print.........haha!
